200MB plan to drop overage penalty
According to a source, T-Mobile may be adding a new 2GB mobile broadband plan. If confirmed, the new plan would cost $40 per month, and would be discounted to $32 per month when added to an existing voice contract. In addition, the source says T-Mobile plans to drop overage charges for the current $30/200MB plan and will instead throttle speeds when that limit is reached. Both changes are reportedly set to take effect Thursday, April 28.
Earlier this year, T-Mobile had unveiled a similar plan dubbed Even More Plus. That plan was quietly dropped that plan from the company's website earlier this month. For a $60 monthly charge, Even More Plus would have offered unlimited talk and text plus 2GB of data at full speed. Data transfer above the 2GB threshold would have been throttled.
